Search and rescue begins in Oklahoma

Search and rescue efforts are underway in parts of Oklahoma City after a massive tornado leveled homes and buildings. Two hospitals have received dozens injured from the tornado. Several are in critical condition. The widespread debris has left many to fear the worst. A young man who worked in a stable survived. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LANDO HITE SAYING: "When they started flying I just dove in a stall and that's about the last, I got covered up with some debris and it pushed me in the shed. I was pretty lucky I suppose." The grief has only just begun. (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNNAMED SURVIVOR SAYING: "Why couldn't this just have hit my house and left this place alone." Witnesses say the tornado appeared more fierce than the giant twister that was among the dozens that tore up the region in 1999, killing more than 40 people.
